I've been to some interesting museums but never one like this. The Museum of Bad Art is a collection of 600 pieces of the worst art ever created. Here are a few gems, along with the museum's all-too honest description... Badminton Anyone?
The genteel social elite in Victorian England enjoyed playing badminton
at lawn parties. The handsome woman depicted in this portrait holds a
shuttlecock featuring colourful feathers and, inexplicably, a modern
racquet better suited for Wimbledon. Pink Woman Rising
A monochrome pink woman inexplicably ascends from a Van Gogh-style wheat field, surrounded by irises, under a starry night sky.
Lucy In The Field
The motion, the chair, the sway of her breast, the subtle hues of the
sky, the expression on her face; every detail cries out "masterpiece".
The subject of this MOBA classic has been identified by her great
grandaughter to be Anna Mae Lally. This painting was the seed that grew
into MOBA when Mr. Wilson's friends convinced him to share his find with
the general public. Spewing Rubik's Cube
This image of the classic Rubik's toys being ejected from a jester gargoyle's mouth can only be described as puzzling.
A trans-gender interpretation of the da Vinci classic. Mana Lisa's nose
strikes nimbly, offsetting the dialogue between the foreground and
profoundly varnished background. Further, by deciphering this work's
title, perhaps we can contribute to the growing body of Leonardo's
I AM NASAL,
A SAIL MAN,
AM A SNAIL,
MAIL NASA...the list goes on.
